The Landlord and Tenant (Covenants) Act 1995 is now twenty years old. It revolutionised the relationship between landlords and tenants, but was enacted in haste, has needed interpretation by the courts, and is still uncertain or deficient in some areas. The video reviews the Act and case law and discusses:

  • how obligations affect successive landlords and tenants
  • whether landlords can contract out
  • AGAs and guaranteed AGAs
  • section 17 notices and their importance for recovering arrears
  • liability for future lease variations
